The BONARKA Shopping Centre, located in Kraków’s historic Podgórze District, was built on the site of former cement and chemical factories. This contemporary, light-filled mall radically changed the character of Kraków’s riverside section of town. The complex was constructed in 2009 of high quality natural materials, such as stone and wood, in a nod to its industrial beginnings and 19th century Polish marketplace feel. Numerous glazings throughout the building were designed to illuminate the many shops and promenades with natural light.
POLFLAM® BR fire-resistant bent glass, as well as our fire-resistant flat glass, were both used in the glazing for the BONARKA underground car park’s stunning entryway, reflecting beautifully the architectural themes of the rest of the Centre.
